Administrative history

The Kanawa Canoe museum was located in Haliburton, Ontario. The director and founder was Professor Kirk Wipper of the University of Toronto. The Canadian Canoe Museum was taken over by a Board of Directors centered at Trent University beginning in 1990. This steering committee was set up in 1980 to investigate "the feasibility of establishing the Kanawa International Museum at Trent". A management consultant was subsequently hired to advise on the location and future development of Kanawa. Kanawa is now known as the Canadian Canoe Museum.

Custodial history

One box of Kanawa materials is held at Trent University Archives. Records of the Canadian Canoe Museum were held on loan from the Museum at Trent University Archives between 1993 and 2014. In 2014, the collection was returned to the Canadian Canoe Museum.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of minutes and correspondence of the Trent-Kanawa's Canoe Museum Committee concerning the feasibility study for the canoe museum.
